Mother's Day 5-13-12

Mother’s Day 5-13-12

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mom’s out there.

I didn’t have too hard of a time today.  I started by getting things ready to have my Mom and three brother’s over with their wives and children.  When getting the paper plates and stuff out I looked at what I had and where it came from.  Most of it came from Kathryn’s service.  All the brightly colored plates and napkins where all her.  Yes, that made me cry a bit.  I also ended up using a some adorable plastic plates that Kathryn had bought for me one Mother’s day.  They are blue, green and white with fish on them.

Richard called me early in the morning to wish me a Happy Mother’s Day.  He’s very thoughtful.  He also called later while we were all eating to wish Grandma a happy mother’s day.  Scott gave me a beautiful card and ring.  The ring had two hearts one was a peridot and the second an amethyst.  Then there were two little diamonds on each side.  The two hearts are birthstones from my birthday month and from Richard’s and Kathryn’s birthday month.  I can’t keep it though.  It only has one February heart not two.  This would remind me that Kathryn is gone and I have one child here with me not two.  I explained to Scott that I have three rings that have two stones to represent both Richard and Kathryn and I can’t keep this one.  The rings I already have are perfect.

We had a wonderful brunch with the family.  I even received a card and big huge fuchsia plant from my brother’s.  I certainly wasn’t expecting anything.  Everything was perfect.  I did forget to put out the deviled eggs.  I was bummed about that.  All and all a very good day.  My friend Robyn came over and she cleaned up the kitchen.  Wow, that was a nice gift.

Richard called again to see how the day went.  It was nice to end my day this way.


  1. God bless you and your sweet family! I'm so glad that the day was a good one for you.

  2. So glad you had a nice Mother's Day. I hope Kathryn's sweet smell was with you to comfort your soul. I know she was smiling and happy for you.
